IPL 2022: Want To Be Part Of World Cup Desperately,” Dinesh Karthik Tells Virat Kohli



With a small target but big vision in mind, RCB’s star batsman of the season, Dinesh Karthik, wants to be a part of the T20 World Cup squad, helping the Indian team cross the line. According to Karthik, it has been a long time since the Indian team has won any multi-nation tournament, and he wants to be a part of it, he says.

“It has been a long time since India won a multi-nation tournament and I want to be that person who helps India do that. For that you need to do things differently, you need to be aware of so many things and try and be that player who people notice and say hey he is doing something special. Every day, I practice with that intent in my mind. As you grow old, you need to be very fit,”

He expressed this desire of him while speaking to the NDTV. He said, after being selected in the RCB, the assistant coach of the RCB team Sanjay Bangar, called him and made him aware of the situation that they don’t have all-round abilities of AB de Villiers now and hardly anyone is there who can match the half of what he had. So that was it, for the veteran Player Dinesh Karthik to understand what role he is going to play with the RCB team.

“I think there is a small term goal and a bigger vision as well. The small term goal is obviously to do very well for RCB, credit to the RCB backroom staff. The day I got picked up for RCB, Sanjay Bangar Bhai called me and told me DK you would be playing the finisher role. We have lost out on AB so we cannot replace him with anybody who is half as good as him. So, we are going to have 2-3 guys who can do that role because he is that good. So, then I took it on myself that okay this is what I need to do. I have been practicing for so long and that was the small term goal,”

With 197 runs amassed from Six game, the player has been successful throughout letting his match win in crucial hours, for example the recent match played against the Delhi Capitals, knocking 66* off 34 runs and helping his team (RCB) to chase the target of 189 runs. In the first few overs, it seemed that the RCB team is going to lose this match after continuous falling of wickets, but beautiful innings by Dinesh Karthik (66 of 34 balls), Glenn Maxwell (55 off 34 Runs) and Shahbaz Ahmed (32 off 21 balls) led the RCB team to win the match with flying colours.

RCB is currently sitting on the third place at the IPLs Point table are one of the top contenders in this year’s TATA IPL league, 2022. Recently, Dinesh Karthik was highly praised by the master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar himself saying,

“There are not many right now who are picking up line & length of a bowler so quickly like Dinesh Karthik has been doing”
